I'm Here For You

This card is for MFT Sketch Challenge #69. Using Yoyo Yellow again, LOL! It's definitely a sunny color. Well, since the centers of chamomile are yellow, I decided to use that to guide my color choices. Then it was just a matter of finding some DP in my stash to carry out the theme.

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Garden Green and Yoyo Yellow, then a layer of DP called Daisy Mini's [sic] from Creative Imaginations. The next element is Garden Green with yellow double threaded ribbon woven through slits punched with my Fiskers Leave It To Weaver punch. That name cracks me up! A Bashful Blue layer that's paper pierced was added and the sentiment, from MFT Essential Sentiments was stamped in Basic Black ink. A cheerful brad from Bo Bunny's Buttercup Bodacious Brads set accents the corner and it's up on 3M foam squares. The focal image was stamped on Gina K's Pure Luxury 80lb. paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers (see below for colors used). It was cut/embossed with my Petite Oval Nestabilities die and I ran my blue marker around the embossed edge. Then I used my Colorless marker and lightly scrubbed the blue so that it ended up looking marbelized. Hard to see here, but IRL it looks pretty good! It was then matted with Garden Green cut/embossed with a Petite Scalloped Oval die and was mounted on more foam squares.

Thanks for dropping in!
